Japanese History of Aggression Stained with Mega-Scale Crime Will Never Be Concealed

Recently in its Diet and the UN arena, the Japanese authorities let loose reckless remarks that deny the facts about forced labor imposed on the Koreans. Such behavior is tantamount to plunging a dagger into the wounds of the victims who were forced into slavery and death.

On the other hand members of Liberal Democratic Party gathered together attempting to register Sado mine, which has vivid criminal records of forcing Koreans into hard labor, as a world heritage.

Prior to this, the Japanese government submitted a report to the UNSC, a report which aroused an international controversy as it negated the facts about sexual slavery crime.

Why does Japan unhesitatingly carry on denying the obvious historical truth then? Its purpose is not only to distort the history. It is to, by all means, cover up its blood-stained past crime and embellish the history of aggression.

It is the grim truth that Japan has persisted, ever since its defeat, in all sorts of trickery in order to erase its criminal records full of sins.

The Japanese authorities, impudently insisting that history can be led to misunderstanding, have now issued instructions to revise the term “aggression” as “advance”, “comfort women for the army” as “comfort women”, and “forced drafting” as “compulsory labour” in history textbooks.

History education has considerable influence on posterity’s outlook on the world. Posterity may choose right way or wrong way. However, this is determined by the outlook on history they have.

The very aim of Japan is to make new posterity a shock brigade in overseas aggression by consistently and systematically instilling militarist view on history and feeling of revanchism into posterity rather than the feeling of guilt about aggression.

It is quite natural that the international community maintains high vigilance and expresses concern about Japan’s persistent moves to distort history, politicians’ continuous visits to Yasukuni Shrine and the dangerous maneuvers to become a military power.

It should be stressed once again that the forced labor of Koreans and the forced sexual slavery for Japanese army, unprecedented in human history, are thoroughly human rights violation crimes as they were, from planning to enforcement, committed directly by the government and military authority in the name of state policy.

Japan’s history of aggression and crime stained with mega-scale crimes will never be concealed how hard they try to distort and deny it.
